Hi, out there.
There is still some code (at least in various packages) which
contains m68k assembler code with instructions not implemented
in the 68060 processor. An example is the ssh package: It uses
the GNU multiprecision library, which leads to a huge amount
of instruction emulation.
A quick workaround in this case would be to use the generic stuff
(C code) instead of the assembler "equivalent", but I'd prefer
an assembler variant for 68060.
Does anyone have a file containing the critical 68k instructions
(i.e. those not implemented in 060s) together with a suitable
replacement for these instructions?
